April 18-20, 2023, Garden Club of Georgia Convention at Stone Mountain Evergreen Resort

See Twig Vol 76 for volunteer signup, sponsorship information and a request for driftwood to be used in table centerpieces.

Message from Barbara Bourque, Convention Chairman:  Dogwood District is hosting the GCG Convention! We want everyone to attend this "Magical" celebration. Fantastic Speakers at the afternoon workshops and meals, wonderful vendors for your shopping pleasure, great room rates at the hotel, delightful camaraderie with garden club friends. Everyone pays their own way for hotel and meals, but it still takes mega-bucks to put on a convention:  Audio Visual is a major cost, speaker fees/meals, printing, tickets, signage, floral designs, etc.  Therefore, we need everyone's help financially and volunteer-wise. Registration forms for Convention will be published in the December Garden Gateways magazine and distributed via email through the listserv.
